Organic candy you can feel good about.This post is sponsored by SurfSweets through the Amplify Influencer Network. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I have a sweet tooth and I'm pretty sure I've passed it on to my child! I'm not so much a chocolate lover (gasp) as I am a chewy, gummy candy fanatic. Brady, like most kids, is pretty much excited about anything sweet and can spot a speck of candy in our kitchen from a mile away.
Like most moms I worry about what goes into my child and we try to follow a balanced, healthy eating plan, saving candy as a special treat. It's definitely come in handy lately since we've started working on discipline. Amazing how quickly a treat can stop a toddler tantrum in it's tracks!
SurfSweets Organic Candy
I'm really not a fan of all the sugar and the artificial flavors and dyes that you find in most candy. So when I heard about a new organic candy coming to Target stores I was definitely excited to check it out and try them. SurfSweets are made with organic fruit juices and are free of corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors. They're also allergy friendly, gluten free as well as peanut and tree nut free.
But none of that matters if they aren't tasty right? And who is going to trust the opinion of a toddler. Well guys, mom and dad stepped up to the plate and tried them out and we've give them a super duper thumbs up. They're so yummy you'd never guess their missing all the bad stuff. Which means your kids will have no idea they are actually a safer snack. The jelly beans are my fave, B and dad are all about the gummy worms.
I love the packaging too, being a design nerd momma! It's bright and fun, the letters are cute, it has total kid appeal. So next time you're shopping at Target and your kid goes to grab up the candy that's full of who knows what, you can steer them to the SurfSweets and they'll be just as excited to snatch them up.
Or you can do like we do and use them as a way to celebrate a big victory (like potty training) or a small one (30 seconds of quiet time.) Hey, it's your kid, you get to choose what counts as a candy worthy moment and you'll feel better knowing you made a smarter choice.
